Las Vegas (FOX5)-More than 6,000 people received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine to attend the Raiders opening game at Allegiant Stadium on Monday night.
Raiders announced in August that all fans would need to show proof of vaccination in order to participate in home games in Las Vegas. There is no option to prove that the COVID-19 test result is negative.
As part of the vaccination policy, the team said fans who would receive the first dose of the vaccine one week before the match would be allowed in the stadium.
In addition, the team hosted a vaccine pop-up at the Allegiant stadium, allowing fans to vaccinate before entering the stadium.
According to the Raiders representative, more than 6,000 people were first vaccinated at Allegiant Stadium or other sites on the day of the match and confirmed to participate in the match. According to the team, about 300 people were vaccinated at the stadium on the day of the match.
According to the team, more than 10,000 people used alternative screening in three days, and more than 7,000 people used alternative screening on Game Day.
Following recent guidance from Nevada Governor Sisorak, fully vaccinated fans can become maskless in the stadium. However, fans who have only been vaccinated once should wear a face cover.
